Hi All,

Hope you all are safe and healthy. Please I need your assistance in installing the Arduino megaAVR Boards. I need to use a new Arduino UNO WiFi Rev2. However, every attempt to install the driver for the board has proved abortive.

Everytime I tried installing it from Tools -> Boards -> Boards Manager, it gives this error message

'Error downloading http://downloads.arduino.cc/cores/megaavr-1.8.5.tar.bz2'

How do you reckon I proceed.

The full error messages are below:

Thank you all for your assistance...

This is just an update that the package has been successfullz installed. I think there was a communication glitch somewhere down the line, either from mz side or from Arduino's. All I did was to leave it till the following day.

Patience is a virtue!

Thanks for taking the time to post an update @Greenlab Microfactory! I had some problems accessing Arduino websites earlier today, but now working just fine, so it's possible the error you got was just caused by a temporary outage of the server that provides the downloads for the Arduino megaAVR Boards platform installation.

Enjoy using your new Uno WiFi Rev2!
